ChicagoGolfClub 7.jpgThe Chicago Tribune's Joel Boyd wonders if college coaches, by recruiting so many foreign players, have hurt the the U.S. in Walker Cup play: "It's no coincidence that at the same time U.S. colleges started to recruit top foreign amateurs en masse, the tables turned in the Walker Cup."

Or maybe foreign players are more complete because they haven't grown up playing only the American way?

Ben Voelker has posted some great Chicago Golf Club photos on Golf Club Atlas as the Raynor-Macdonald course is set up for the Walker Cup.  And here's a March Golfdom story by editor Larry Aylward on Jon Jennings, Chicago's superintendent and one of the true class-acts in golf.

This will take you to the Golf Channel Walker Cup page.  TV Times: Saturday 8/13 11:00 AM - 1:00 PM ET TGC, Sunday 8/14 4:00 PM - 6:00 PM ET TGC.
